ALL London hosts webinars for the MFL community and this webinar, held in a Zoom room and also viewable on an unlisted YouTube stream, is open to all MFL teachers. We hope that you will like us and want to join!
We thank the presenters, who give freely of their time and expertise. Where possible, most sessions are recorded and available for viewing later.


Most primary schools in Scotland now introduce 2 languages to their learners – this is called the 1+2 language policy. The programme has been most successful in schools where practitioners have embedded the target language into their learning context.
Through a selection of resources developed by PowerLanguage and used widely in Primary and Secondary Scottish schools, find out how embedding resources as a first step towards CLIL will free up some time for modern language teaching, thus enhancing the language provision in your school
The resources used during the session will be shared with all participants and can be used for blended learning.
Come and find out more during our Webinar on Wednesday 27th January. A fun and interactive session from the partners of the ELAPSE project (lfee.net/elapse) and the creators of the popular Online course for families (French and English) powerlanguage.courses.

Themes for the evening: Health and Well being and Ancient Egypt.
Audience: This session is suitable for Primary and secondary school teachers.

Languages: French and Spanish although examples will be presented in French.

00:36:57 Nadine Fraize: quand je me sens seul, je fais une promenade
00:37:26 Gill’s iPhone 6s: je regarde le film français
00:37:44 Nadine Fraize: quand je suis fatiguée, je regarde un film à la télé
00:37:46 Beulah-gail Adzo: yo duermo
00:37:54 Gill’s iPhone 6s: je dors
00:38:00 lisibo: Cuando estoy cansada, escucho la mĂșsica
00:38:00 Nicky Fisher: je me couche et je lis
00:38:00 Victoria Ortega: Je faire la peinture
00:38:06 Thierry Gentil: when I’m tired, I go to bed
00:38:15 Morag: cuando estoy cansada, me voy a la cama
00:38:19 Josie Crossley: quand je me sens seul, je joue du piano
00:38:21 maria kimpton: quand je suis fatiguee je lis un livre
00:38:23 GĂ©raldine: Quand je me sens fatigue et seule, je suis un super Webinair 🙂
00:38:31 Geraldine: Je fais la sieste
00:38:36 Rosa Gonzales Skinnari: Descanso en el sillĂłn
00:38:43 Marie-Dominique LACORTE: quand je me sent seule je regarde des photo
00:38:49 lisibo: Cuando estoy enfadada, corro en el parque
00:38:50 Helen Myers: Excellent, Geraldine!
00:39:04 Thierry Gentil: excellent @marie-dominique
00:41:07 lisibo: My friend is a Brown Owl and asked me to record some phrases in a language the Brownie wouldn’t know so that they could try and guess the emoji that corresponded with the phrase simply by the intonation and the way the words were said.
00:42:05 Josie Crossley: I’m a Brownie leader too! (Red Squirrel, not an owl) but this is a great idea
00:42:45 lisibo: I’m stealing it for my classes – but I thought it was really good as it shows the importance of listening to HOW people speak as well as their words.
00:44:26 lisibo: I think the emotions activity is really useful _ I’ll be doing that tomorrow when I have y3 online for Spanish.
00:44:32 lisibo: Definitely good for PSHE
00:45:10 Victoria Ortega: Way of sharing British values
00:45:16 lisibo: I’m currently teaching online but have to go in next week as the bubbles are getting too big at school and they need more staff!
00:45:23 Gill’s iPhone 6s: morning check ins in French
00:46:20 Thierry Gentil: Nice way to start
00:46:37 Nicky Fisher: I like the idea of emojis because the children relate to them
00:46:39 lisibo: I also think that resources would certainly support non-specialists as here are sound files I noticed.
00:46:40 Josie Crossley: Could link it to Geography topics
00:47:03 Helen Myers: Excellent idea to bring in la francophonie
00:47:06 lisibo: That’s the thing that my colleagues worry about most./ They’re enjoying my lessons at the moment if they’re in school as they’re learning with the children
00:47:19 Rosa Gonzales Skinnari: We can use with sports too
00:47:47 lisibo: The Francophonie is also very important – and the Hispanic world – so ch know that French/Spanish are spoken elsewhere – less eurocentric
00:47:57 Morag: I really like the Francophonie document – in my KS3 groups I have interested a country-theme for each year. It has worked really well- also helped with embedding culture into the classroom. In primary, we do short topics, often alongside the topics being done in other lessons
00:48:01 GĂ©raldine: It makes the children want to communicate!
00:48:19 Victoria Ortega: I think it is also a nice way to support low ability EAL students, to keep revising common English vocabulary of feelings etc
00:48:22 Jennifer Eddy: Because it is relevant to other aspects of the curriculum and extends to real life.
00:48:23 Helen Myers: It shows you are interested in them!
00:48:37 Rosa Gonzales Skinnari: And the DACH countries, Deutschland, Austria and Schweiz
00:49:05 lisibo: That’s true – I just got on and did my Spanish lessons live – and i’ve lead the way so they daren’t cancel me 😉
00:49:18 Jane Harvey: using languages to express emotions and widen horizons inlckdown
00:50:23 Morag: Teaching live – the students don’t all log on at once, so there is time to do more of this with individuals
00:50:38 Thierry Gentil: brain storming
00:50:47 Beulah-gail Adzo: pyramid

00:56:25 lisibo: very clear and simple enough o follow
00:56:28 Geraldine: simple
00:56:35 Morag: Calm, masculine/feminine forms, pictures helped you get vocab
00:56:36 Victoria Ortega: Very clear and scaffolded, introducing first the main vocabulary then adding more info
00:56:38 lisibo: helped that the numbers were in numbers
00:56:47 Josie Crossley: Quite high level and topic-specific words for 8 year olds!
00:56:50 Rosa Gonzales Skinnari: It’s easy to follow pictures, text and sound
00:56:52 Victoria Ortega: Very visual!
00:56:53 lisibo: Short sentences
00:56:54 SSamia Saci: Proper names seen in history classes
00:57:21 Marie-Dominique LACORTE: they speack slowly
00:57:28 Thierry Gentil: low speed vocal
00:58:06 lisibo: very important facts are shared – balances language and history
00:59:44 Victoria Ortega: I think this kind of lessons should be taught more often even during face-to-face teaching. I think it would increase students’ enagagement
01:01:44 Victoria Ortega: Moi!
01:01:51 lisibo: Non MOI!
